RUNHIDEFIGHT PERFORM A Rooftop SESSION
PLUS A MIX OF NEW MUSIC FROM SOME DIY FAVORITES

Raucous Philadelphia rock garage band RunHideFight joined us on the Cigar Factory roof in October 2018 before a show at Muhleberg College later that night. The new band is made up of Philly garage rock veterans Geeta Simons (ex-Rockula, Swisher), Christine Weiser (ex-Mae Pang, Suffacox), and Jon Kois (ex-Three 4 Tens, Waistoid). Rounding out the group is Lehigh Valley garage rock stalwart Brother JT (ex-The Original Sins, The Creatures) on guitar. The year-old band has released their first official single (“He’s a Jerk”) and is prepping a debut full-length album.

Also on this show, we listen to some of the new music sent our way from DIY bands in the area. Included in the mix are tracks from Teenage Halloween and Soft Idiot who are performing at the next live show in our concert series at National Sokols in Bethlehem on December 15, 2018.
